It's like a Bubbling Brook

Philippians 4:4-7 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding , will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. The Peace of God that transcends….. I have often felt and have been enveloped by the Peace of God.  Usually I have quickly recognized it, but this time….with the passing of my mom…it has been a little different.  I have found myself asking why I am not hurting more…why the grieving somehow seems less so quickly…its only been a week.

My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.  He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.  Behold, he that keepe t h Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy ke e per: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.  The LORD shall preserve thee from all e v il: he shall pre s erve thy soul.  The LORD shall preserve thy g o ing out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even  for evermore. I was singing this Psalm this morn i ng in the car on t h e w a y to w ork. As I was reading this Psalm, I was lead to r ead about David bui l ding an alter shortly after the Lord sent a plague on I s rael and 70,000 men f e ll dead.  As the angel was carrying out the instructions of the Lo r d, the Bible says the Lord saw it and relented; the mercy of God.
